“Alleged Temple” organizations call to carry out “widespread invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque,” i.e. visit during Jewish holiday
Headline: “The ‘alleged Temple’ organizations renewed their calls to invade the Al-Aqsa Mosque tomorrow”
“The ‘alleged Temple’ organizations renewed their calls yesterday [Oct. 19, 2019] to carry out widespread invasions of the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the seventh day of the Jewish ‘Sukkot holiday.’”
“Temple organizations” refer to religious Jewish movements including the Temple Mount Institute, the Temple Mount Heritage Foundation, the Initiative for Jewish Freedom on the Temple Mount, and Students for the Temple Mount, which spread awareness of the importance of the Temple Mount in Judaism and encourage people to visit the site.
The PA and its leaders consider all of the Temple Mount an integral part of the Al-Aqsa Mosque. Therefore they view any presence of Jews on the mount as an “invasion” or a "break-in." It should be noted that Jews who visit the Temple Mount only enter some sections of the open areas, and do not enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque or the Dome of the Rock. Israeli police ban Jewish prayer at the Temple Mount because of threats of violence by Palestinians.
